stock height & tire limitations

Hi all! Newbie here. I've been on the Dodge Cummins bandwagon for a long time and recently found a great deal on a 2001 RC 4x4 7.3 truck. I found a great deal on some used Centerline 16.5x10 wheels wrapped with BFG 33/12.5/16.5 tires and want to know what I should expect for clearance when I bolt em up. I'm sure that the offset will push them out, and of course the tires are considerably bigger than stock. I'd rather not get into lifting at all, I've been down that road many times. Any input is greatly appreciated!

No input anybody? Well, I went ahead and bought em and they worked out just fine with some minor trimming on the plastic on the lowest section of the bumper. Big improvement in the looks department IMO
